OpenAI AddOn

The OpenAI AddOn is only available for Superpower and Enterprise plans.

AI Writing Assistant Overview

Use this AddOn to enable the AI Writing Assistant for your end users. This AddOn allows users to generate text within their designs using AI, helping them complete their designs faster and more efficiently. This AddOn integrates with OpenAI as the provider for this feature.

With this feature, your end users will see a “Write with AI” button for Title, Paragraph, List, and Button content blocks. Beefree SDK processes your end users' prompts, sends them to your AI provider, and returns the response to the end user. They can then decide to apply or regenerate the response.

By integrating the AI Writing Assistant, you provide your end users with a powerful tool to complete their designs quickly, which helps them maintain a competitive edge. This AddOn is quick and simple to integrate.

The following image provides an example of how the AI Writing Assistant looks to your end user:

How to enable the OpenAI AddOn

The OpenAI AddOn is fully functional from the moment it’s enabled via the Beefree SDK Console. For information about enabling OpenAI AddOn click here.

Once enabled, the OpenAI AddOn is available in the side panel for the following content blocks:

  • Title

  • Paragraph

  • List

  • Button

Customize the AddOn's Configuration

In certain scenarios, you may find the need to personalize both the user interface (UI) and the operational features of the OpenAI AddOn. This is particularly applicable when you want to achieve objectives such as:

  1. Monitoring Token Usage for Cost Management: By tracking the number of tokens being used, you can effectively manage and regulate your expenses related to using the OpenAI AddOn. This becomes important when your usage is high, and you must keep a budget check. Learn more about tokens.

  2. Controlling Access to the Prompt: You might want to limit who can access and manipulate the prompt. In a shared environment, for instance, you may want to restrict certain users from altering the prompt, which is crucial for maintaining consistency and avoiding unwanted changes.

  3. Enabling Per User or Per Content Type: You might want to limit who can access the AI so you can up-sell the feature to end-users. Or, you may only want to enable the AI capability for specific content types, such as paragraphs vs. buttons.

  4. Disabling Automatic Suggestions: The OpenAI AddOn can generate automatic suggestions at the prompt, which may not always be desirable. In such cases, you might want to disable this feature to have more control over the input and output at the prompt.

  5. Token Upselling: The OpenAI AddOn can be configured to guide your end users to purchase additional tokens when they run out of available tokens. This feature is called Token Upselling.

We’ll cover all of these scenarios in the following sections as we discuss the settings and configuration options available for developers.

General Settings

Note: All settings are optional and may be refreshed, in real-time, via the configuration reload instance method (e.g. bee.loadConfig(settings)) during the active session.

Currently, the following settings are supported:

SettingTypeDescription

tokensAvailable

number

Display only value for the optional Display Usage Widget: The total tokens available for the user to consume during the session. If provided, tokensUsed and tokenLabel are required.

tokensUsed

number

Display only value for the optional Display Usage Widget: The number of tokens that the addon user has consumed during the current session. If provided, tokensAvailable and tokenLabel are required.

tokenLabel

string

Display only value for the optional Display Usage Widget: The API reports token usage, but the host app may refer to tokens as words or any other nomenclature that makes sense to its users. Required when providing usage limits via tokensAvailable and tokensUsed parameters.

isPromptDisabled

boolean

Set to true to lock the prompt. The chat interface will be disabled but allow previous answers to be applied.

isSuggestionsDisabled

boolean

Set to true to hide the suggestions popup. Set this to false to disable the prompt presets.

isUpsellEnabled

boolean

A boolean that confirms whether or not the Token Upsell feature is enabled.

metadataGeneration

boolean

A boolean that confirms whether or not the AI-Generated Meta Tag fields feature is enabled

Example

const beeConfig = {
    uid: 'string',  // Unique identifier for the user
    ... 
    addOns: [
      {
        id: "ai-integration",  // Identifier for the AI integration add-on
        settings: {
          tokensAvailable: tokensAvailable,  // Total tokens available for user consumption during the session
          tokensUsed: tokenCounter,  // Number of tokens consumed by the user during the current session
          tokenLabel: 'tokens',  // Label for the token usage, customizable by the host app
          isPromptDisabled: false,  // Whether to lock the prompt interface
          isSuggestionsDisabled: false,  // Use to remove prompt presets, decide whether to hide the suggestions popup 
          isUpsellEnabled: true,  // Whether Token Upsell feature is enabled
          metadataGeneration: true  // Whether AI-Generated Meta Tag fields feature is enabled (enabled by default)
        }
      },
    ],
    ...
}

Monitor Usage

With each prompt response, the addon will report the usage data provided by the OpenAI API via the editor’s onInfo callback without storing or tracking the data.

Example


const beeConfig = {
    uid: 'string',
    ... 
    onInfo: function (data) {

        // Check information is addon
        if (data.code === 1000) {

            // Check which addon
            const handle = data.detail.handle
            if (handle === 'ai-integration') {
                // Get the total tokens
                const totalTokens = data.detail.usage.total_tokens
                // Update running total in database
                // --> host app code goes here
            }
        }
    },
    ...
}
     

Display Usage Widget

You may choose to track the end-user’s total usage through the aforementioned onInfo callback if desired. Additionally, you may choose to show the usage data to the user via the built-in display widget. To activate the display usage widget, provide the usage data via the addon settings. Since the editor doesn’t track usage, you’ll need to refresh the values via the bee.loadConfig method to keep the display widget data current.

Example


let tokenCounter = 0
let tokensAvailable = 2000

const beeConfig = {
    uid: 'string',
    ...
    // Initial AddOn configuration
    addOns: [
      {
        id: "ai-integration",
        settings: {
          tokensAvailable: tokensAvailable,
          tokensUsed: tokenCounter,
          tokenLabel: 'words',
          isPromptDisabled: false,
        }
      },
    ],
    ...
    // Monitor for information
    onInfo: function (data) {

        // Check information code is 1000 for addon reporting
        if (data.code === 1000) {

            // Check which addon
            const handle = data.detail.handle
            if (handle === 'ai-integration') {
                const totalTokens = data.detail.usage.total_tokens
                tokenCounter = tokenCounter + totalTokens

                // Refresh Usage AddOn Settings
                const refreshedUsageSettings = {
                    addOns: [
                        {
                            id: "ai-integration",
                            settings: {
                                tokensAvailable: tokensAvailable,
                                tokensUsed: tokenCounter,
                                tokenLabel: 'tokens',
                                isPromptDisabled: (tokenCounter >= tokensAvailable) ? true : false,
                            }
                        },
                    ],
                }

                // Reload Config
                bee.loadConfig(refreshedUsageSettings)
            }
        }
    },
}

See below for an example of how the UI will render when provided with the optional display usage widget.

Disable Prompts Per User

To enable OpenAI AddOn, but disable the prompt per user, pass the isPromptDisabled boolean parameter as true.

The following example will disable the prompts for the user with an uid of inactive-user.

Example


const beeConfig = {
    uid: 'inactive-user',
    ... 
    addOns: [
      {
        id: "ai-integration",
        settings: {
          isPromptDisabled: true,
        }
      },
    ],
    ...
}
     

Disable AddOn Per User

To disable the OpenAI AddOn for a particular user, use the following configuration. Ensure the enabled parameter is set to false. To turn the AddOn back on for a user, edit the parameter to true.


const beeConfig = {
    uid: 'inactive-user',
    ... 
    addOns: [
      {
        id: "ai-integration",
        enabled: false
      },
    ],
    ...
}
     

Disable AddOn Per Content Block Type

The OpenAI AddOn is available for the following content blocks:

  • Title

  • Paragraph

  • List

  • Button

You may utilize the Advanced Permissions configuration to disable OpenAI AddOn per content type.

The following example will disable the addon for the paragraph block:

Example


const beeConfig = {
    uid: 'string',
    ... 
    advancedPermissions: {
      content: {
        paragraph: {
          behaviors: {
            canViewSidebar: true,
          },
          properties: {
            aiIntegration: {
              show: false,
              locked: true
            },
          },
        },
      },
    }
    ...
}
     

Prompt Suggestions

OpenAI AddOn includes preset prompt suggestions to facilitate the content creation process. These appear after the initial draft of your text has been formulated and whenever further refinement is needed. Please note that this function applies only when editing existing text through the AI prompt. The suggestions will not appear for placeholder text.

Here’s a simplified step-by-step guide on how to use suggestions, as shown below:

  1. Start with your draft text added to the design area.

  2. If you desire to adjust the tone to be more formal, for example, click on the paragraph, list, title, or button you want to modify.

  3. Navigate to the ‘Write with AI’ option.

  4. Click on the area designated for adding prompts.

  5. You’ll notice the prompt suggestions popup.

  6. Select the ‘Make it [desired tone]’ option, making sure to replace [desired tone] with a value (e.g., funny)

  7. Click ‘Generate’.

The AI will then generate a revised version of your content, matching the tone you entered.

Additional considerations

Prior to configuring the OpenAI AddOn, consider the following:

Scrolling Behavior

This section will discuss how to manage an odd scrolling behavior related to the OpenAI AddOn. At times, the AI Writing Assistant side panel opens and requires the end user to scroll down to reach the prompting area.

The following image shows an example of this behavior:

If you encounter this behavior, take the following steps to avoid the need for scrolling to access the prompting area:

  1. Navigate to your CSS code.

  2. Change the height of your container using the calc() function as shown in the following examples:

Example A:
height: calc(100% - 100px); // offset for 100px footer

This sets the height of the element to be the full height of its parent (100%) minus 100px, which accounts for an offset such as a footer.

Example B:
height: calc(100%);  // no offset needed

This sets the height of the element to be exactly 100% of its parent's height with no offset.

The calc() function allows for mathematical expressions in CSS values, making it versatile for dynamic layouts.

  1. Save your updated CSS.

You can now access the prompting section of the AI Writing Assistant on the front end without scrolling down the side panel.

The following image shows an example of this result:
